Two weeks ago, during the great northeast snowshow, we challenged Mudders to capture their outdoor workout and upload it using #SnowMudder. We promised the winner a flight, hotel stay and entry to Tough Mudder Whistler 2015. While we got hundreds of hilarious submissions from Mudders nationwide, one Mudder boldly stood out from the rest.
Tough Mudder London West on Saturday the 2nd of May, has sold out. Due to traffic restrictions on local roads we have to cap total participant numbers and the fantastic response from Mudders this year has meant we’ve reached that total faster than ever before.
For a half-decade, thousands upon thousands of children have witnessed their parents and grandparents; uncles and aunts; babysitters and teachers boldly traverse Tough Mudder’s 10 to 12-mile obstacle course.
They’ve watched on in inspiration with one thing in mind: When will it be my turn?
This year, however, we’re silencing the are-we-there-yets with the release of Fruit Shoot Mini Mudder, the very first kid-sized obstacle course of its kind.
As you round the corner around mile ten at Tough Mudder this year, you’ll see what appears to be another Funky Monkey in the distance. Get a little closer, and you’re reaction might be something like this: WHAT THE #$@& IS THAT?
Well, that’d be Dead Ringer, and here’s what you need to know about it.
We have an important event announcement to share. This year’s Tough Mudder Poconos event is shifting closer to Philadelphia and will now be Tough Mudder Philly which is scheduled for October, 17 & 18, 2015 at Plantation Field in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
This change is part of our commitment to bringing you the best course possible. It provides the opportunity to experience a new venue with a stunningly scenic course featuring rolling hills, varied terrain and a slew of our new-for-2015 obstacles.
Last week, we got around. Now get your mind out of the mud because we’re talking about the worldwide media fanfare surrounding our new obstacles. Here are five of hundreds of outlets that decided that our big news was their big news in one short week.
They say you shouldn’t mess with perfection. Well we have a message for They: Oops. For 2015, our course designers have made some awesome updates to our signature Tough Mudder obstacles.
Here are some new-and-improved challenges you’ll encounter in 2015.
1. It’ll be here before you know it.
Mudder season kicks off in just a few weeks on March 7th with Tough Mudder Gulf Coast. Lucky for you, however, there’s still plenty of time to get on a training regimen to prepare for a Tough Mudder event near you before the coming price increases at midnight on January 29.
In addition to tackling dozens of adrenaline-inducing obstacles, on Tough Mudder event day, Mudders must also run through a gauntlet of emotions. From start line nerves to finish line euphoria, the emotions that Mudders experience are as diverse and exhilarating as the obstacles themselves.
And while every Mudder journey is unique, there are three moments you’re absolutely guaranteed to have on a Tough Mudder course.
1. Because you can
With the right mentality and the right team, anyone can reach the finish line--all it takes is audacity to say “I’ll try,” just like these motivating Mudders of 2014.
